Implementation of a paper lantern

So that the resulting windlight has an edge, follow the next steps! Do not give up on the edge! It makes the Lampignon more stable and complete.
Be sure to use a paper glue! Any aggressive adhesive would cause the paper to ripple and cause surface irregularities.
Cut, fold and glue carefully! Now we have created a space from the paper surface. Make a square tube from the paper sheet and gently fold the paper together at the recommended locations.
